CPRE North Yorkshire Trustee

We are a small, but expanding, branch of the national CPRE environmental charity. Members, supporters and volunteers come from across the county. New Trustees help to provide continuity, govern the charity and guide our future work.

Skills or experience required?:

You will be mainly home-based, carrying out activities around your other commitments and attending meetings either virtually or at The Rural Art Centre in Thirsk. As a guide we attend about four meetings per year and the Annual General Meeting.
